Waste Recycling

At Lindum, we understand the need to be more sustainable. With landfill now becoming a finite and expensive resource, we are continually seeking out new and innovative solutions to recycle more of your waste. With a dedicated recycling facility, we are able to segregate your waste further into single waste streams which can then be recycled and re-used in new forms.

Wood

Wood is becoming ever more difficult to recycle.

There is reduced demand across the country as plans to build new biomass power stations were shelved and the UK’s largest manufacturer of chipboard closed its doors this year.

Thankfully, with our recycling partners we are still able to recycle all of your timber in new and innovative ways - e.g. to produce biomass pellets used in power stations and in the composting process, reducing the controversial use of peat.

Cardboard and Paper

Cardboard and paper are probably the most recognisable products that we recycle.

Most types of paper, cardboard, newspapers and magazines can
be recycled.

We offer a range of different waste collection services to collect your cardboard and paper, from 40 yd RORO skips to smaller enclosed
skips. We also offer a collection service from small bags to materials that
you may have already baled.

Your cardboard and paper is then sent to be recycled and re-used through our close relationships with approved, responsible recyclers.

Plasterboard

Waste plasterboard and gypsum has been banned from landfill since 2009.

By segregating the gypsum and plaster waste from your skips the material is then used in the composting process.

Whilst the paper fraction can biodegrade as part of the compost, the gypsum will be incorporated into the final compost product. This results in a calcium and sulphur-rich compost.

Where you are able to segregate plasterboard on site, making it easier for us to handle and recycle, we can reduce the price of your skip.

Plastic

Lindum recycle a wide range of plastics used in many domestic and commercial applications from agriculture to construction.

Plastic has many uses and has become a predominant material of choice for many uses, from drain pipes to plastic film used to wrap the insulation in your loft. The majority of these materials can be re-used and recycled.

By segregating your waste plastics into the various different grades, from PVC drain pipes to HDPE used to make wheelie bins, we ensure that we recycle as much as we possible can.

Agricultural Waste

Many of the products used in agriculture can actually be recycled.

At LWR, we are located in the heart of the farming community and have many long established relationships with farmers, helping to them to reduce their environmental impact.

From spray drums to seed bags, we are able to recycle the material to ensure very little of the agricultural waste produced is wasted.

WEEE (Waste Electrical & Electronic Equipment)

The Waste Electrical and Electronic Equipment Directive (WEEE Directive was introduced in January 2007.

It aims to reduce the amount of electrical and electronic equipment being produced - encouraging everyone to reuse, recycle and recover.

At LWR we can accept your waste electrical items and ensure they are recycled responsibly through our approved recycling partners. WEEE items are split into two categories, hazardous (including fridges and TV’s) and non-hazardous, both of which we recycle.

Metal

Vast amounts of energy is used in extracting and processing materials used in the production of ferrous and non ferrous metals.

We recycle your waste metal for re-use, reducing your carbon footprint and preserving reserves of raw materials.

Green Waste

Shrubs, bushes, small trees and branches, garden waste and leaves
can all be recycled.

Your waste is taken to create compost and then used in the local
agricultural industry.
